  2. Seems that the works for logging in, however now the iSCSI write through cache option no longer stays on. I can see it in the menu, but it's not possible to keep it "checked" on. Any chance to get that fixed?
  3. After upgrading my Mac OSX from Yosemite to El Capitan, I can no longer connect to the storage. Newest global san iSCSI initiator version and using the I uninstalled everyting using the uninstaller and then reinstalled everything. Any clue as to why I can no longer succesfully log in? Globals san is all lit up as normal and the storage is found without problem. thanks
  4. We can take a closer look at the environment if you'd like to open a support case.
  5. Hi Ben, The macOS server shares the iSCSI volumes to the client workstations as a NAS share, correct? If so, then yes, only one globalSAN license will needed. If you have any other questions, or if we can help out with anything, please feel free to open a support case. Thank you! Alan
  6. I set up a small lab of Mac computers, one of them being OSX server and a NAS capable of using iSCSI targets. I installed globalSAN iSCSI initiator on the server and mounted the iSCSI volume as "local storage" on the server. I then used the OSX server features to allow OSX client users to 'redirect' their home folders to the server's "local storage" aka the iscsi drive. I just called SNS to purchase the $89 license for our server, and the sales agent told me I need to buy a license for each client computer...is this correct? I'm not installing anything on the client computers....nothing on the client computers is accessing the iscsi/NAS device directly.
  7. I got it working Thought I'd share the script here. This is my disconnect script. You need to run diskutil list in terminal while the target disk is mounted on your desktop in order to find what name the volume has. In my case it's disk2s2. do script "" in window 1 allows the script to happen all in the same window, otherwise it launches a new window per command. For the Connect script, just change disconnect to connect and take out the first 2 commands. tell application "Terminal" reopen activate do script "diskutil unmount /dev/disk2s2" in window 1 delay 4 do script "cd /opt/local/bin" in window 1 delay 2 do script "./gsutil --disconnect 4C2XXXXX-DE1E-4C6A-BABE-XXXXX7F61763" in window 1 end tell tell application "Finder" set visible of process "Terminal" to false end tell Then I just made the 2 scripts into services with the help of Automator. Works like a charm. EDIT: I tried the bash thing but it wouldn't work, so I just use cd
  8. My EVO has several NAS shares that we mount on our macs via afp. Within the last day or so, one of the machines keeps dropping one of the NAS share mounts. It remains connected to the remaining shares, but this one share for whatever reason will not stay mounted if left inactive for a couple of minutes. Our EVO configuration did indeed change recently. During the holidays, I pulled all of the data from our SAN volumes, and converted all SAN shares to NAS, and replaced the data. Along the way, I backed up a NAS share, deleted it, recreated it with less space, and spread some of the extra space around to the newly created NAS shares that replaced the SAN shares. The NAS share that can not stay mounted, is actually the ONLY share on the EVO that did not get changed at all through the holidays. It has always worked fine in the past. Suddenly, it will not stay connected. It is seemingly on only this one computer, and it is only that one NAS share. I have tried both mounting the share through the ShareBrowser, as well as using the finder connect to server function. Neither seem to make it to where the share will remain mounted if let idle for more than a couple of minutes. Anyone have any ideas on what to try to get the mount to stick?
  9. Hi there. Yes looks like "Automatic Read/Write Sync" is enabled on all but 2 of our volumes, with a sync interval of 20 seconds. So that would explain the constant Explorer closing. I could turn that off, but reading the SANmp client manual seems to suggest it's best to leave it on. I'll open a case, as I do still have some related questions. Thanks.
  10. I believe this was resolved yesterday by removing invalid components, but please open a support case if we can assist with anything else.
  11. Is Auto Sync enabled in SANmp Admin? This is expected behavior if an Explorer window is open when the sync interval hits. Feel free to open a support case if you still have concerns, and we can take a closer look at the environment.
  12. I installed what I believe is iSCSI initiator on my MacBook with High Sierra and after accepting the extension on the security screen I rebooted and my Mac loader goes slower than normal and seems to get stuck causing to login screen to never appear and all I have is Apple logo with a full loader bar underneath. Held shift to get to safe mode so I could maybe uninstall but no luck. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Hi there. Running iSANmp on Windows 10 Pro. We have an EVO unit. When I browse a SAN volume in Windows File Explorer, the window will randomly close. Usually after 10 seconds or a couple minutes. But sometimes it stays open normally. Anyone else seen this? Thanks.
  14. Hi Marco, Please open a support case for assistance with this, if you haven't already gotten it sorted. Thanks.
  15. Hi Guys, I have multiple license keys for iSCSI Initiator and want to re-locate a key to a new computer. I seem to have lost track of the link to a page that allows me to de-activate on the old computer a key and re-activate it on a new one. Can anybody help out with providing the link? Thanks in advance! Marco
  16. So I'm trying to get my feet wet and it doesn't seem like gustily is responding.

  17. The manual is found in the /Applications/globalSAN folder, and section 3.3 covers the CLI. The current version has the added notes about the PATH variable that we discussed in January. Feel free to open a support case if we can help with anything else!
  18. Almost a year later I'm back.. Wow, time flies. I never got to automate this. I went with the free github sourced OSX Initiator, have been using it for a year but I don't like that you have to disable the system lock in order to install and use. So I think I will be buying your globalsan version. This is what I used for the github initiator through an automator script that ran this in the terminal. on run {input, parameters} tell application "Terminal" activate do script with command "iscsictl login iqn.2004-04.com.qnap:ts-251:iscsi.nasphotos.02d665," end tell tell application "Finder" set visible of process "Terminal" to false end tell end run What would be the equivalent using globalsan? Or where is this manual you are talking about above?

  20. Hi Marwan, just raise a support ticket with SNS - their customer support is really awesome. Whenever I had any issue with my keys the fixed that extremly fast. Cheers, budy
  21. Dear SNS, I have purchased 4 license keys for GlobalSAN ISCSI Initiatior, and I've successfully activated 2 keys using the website. Essentially, copying the key from the software, pasting it in the website, and then pasting the key into the software to activate. However, I'm trying the software on a third iMac and I'm facing an issue with the key. I paste the key from the software just as I have done before, only this time when I input the Key from the website, it says that the key either has been used, or outdated. I'm pretty certain that that isn't the case. I've tried de-activating the key (which I haven't used) and activating it again, to no success. Then, in one case, it registered in the website that the license was activated, yet on the software side still on trial mode. I de-activated it, and tried again, with no results. I've tried un-installing the programme and installing it again. I tried restarting the system. Nothing works. Appreciate your time and patience. Sincerely, Marwan
  22. Intelligent bandwidth control

    your networking equipment has potential to do layer 3 and layer 7 traffic shaping and throttling. Looking at cisco meraki equipment you can see there's a few options to limit bandwidth but nothing specific to being intelligent of the number of active devices and utilisation based on a percentage. traffic shaping options
  23. I have v5.8.1.88 installed on my EVO but only see the v5.8 announcement. Where are all releases and release notes kept?
  24. As you can see, by default, the username and password can be see by anyone on the network capturing packets as the credentials are sent in plain text. I'm very surprised this is the default behaviour. screenshot of credentials sent in plain text
  25. I'm noticing that on any page, even the login page when not logged in as in the example showing the requests, the admin console is constantly (every second or twice per second) trying to reach http://ip-of-server/clientSoap.php screenshot of requests Why is the system constantly requesting this page? Why is it always returning 430 even when logged into the admin console?
